America has been honoring brilliant students through honor societies since 1921. Educators began to notice the need for subject specific honor societies in America’s high schools in the 1980's. Since then, new honor societies have sprung up to recognize and encourage students in such areas as English, Art, French, and Spanish. Until now, there has been no national honor society for Science. In this era of rapidly changing technologies and scientific advancement, it is time to encourage and recognize high school students in the Sciences.
SNHS is a prominent scientific organization that will engender a new group of young thinkers who will be the future of industry, research, and scientific exploration for America.
(SNHS is not directly affiliated with the National Honor Society but we do maintain a cordial and professional relationship with that organization.)
The SNHS physical address has changed so make a note for the future:
SNHS, 6010 Washington Avenue, Suite D, Houston, TX 77007
Important Update - SNHS Dues and Applications Fees have changed
Due to rising costs for postage, certificates, and web services, our prices have increased. Yearly dues will be $60/year. Joining the SNHS will cost $200 for domestic chapters and $300 for International chapters. This set of changes will help us to keep the SNHS functioning. Remember that we are all volunteers, any extra left over goes to the scholarship fund.
The scholarship applications period for the 2018-2019 school year will open in December 2018. We are testing electronic applications that will be submitted online. The application due date will be February 9, 2019. We will reviewe those applications and winners are being notified in late March 2019.
